Hi guys,
I went to the second night of the HOT TUNA Jorma's birthday bash weekend. I was lucky enough to get first row loge seats a little left of center. The place was beautiful
and of course sold out. I did not here to much of the guest list for Friday but Saturday was an interesting mix. The first 4-5 Tuna tunes were great and the the drum mix was excellant.Then the guests started to appear, first was Pete Sears on piano, now the order of guests may be a little off. now comes Bob Steeler one of Tuna's older drummers, then comes the bass player for the Allman Bros band, so now there are 2 bass players 2 drummers,Steve Earle plays a Strat and out comes your friend and mine Bobby Weir w/ a red Gibson 335 and then changed to a Martin acoustic to do
Paint My Masterpiece. There were 2 sets pretty well organised and things went off w/o to much trouble. As tradition holds we went to China town to fillout the evening and a great time was had by all . I'm not going to compare nights because I was not there on Friday and opions to me matter very little when trying to compare a jam......lw

ABSOLUTELY NOT ,a very casual affair. If you must know grey shirt w/ grey jeans very color coridinated.Jorma was letting all around do a turn and come back around. At 80 I don't think this will be happening so for one I'm glad I saw it and did the whole China town traditional after show
very late night meal. For those of you who went into your vaults to pick out a gem well hope youpicked a good one . And I bid you good night....lw
